Taddy Blazusiak is no stranger to motorsports success. The Polish rider is one of the most consistent enduro competitors in the world, and he proved it once again at the X-Games in Los Angeles. He recently captured his second X-Games gold medal of the year, winning the Men’s EnduroX competition in an impressive fashion.
Blazusiak quickly proved he was the one to beat in the race, jumping out to a fast start to claim the hole-shot in his qualifying round. He won easily, securing a spot in the main event and placing himself as the favorite in the process. The dominance continued through the start of the gold-medal race, as Blazusiak was once again the fastest out of the gate and managed to fight off the competitors for the win.
His main challenger was Mike Brown, and the American rider put forth a valiant effort before suffering from a slight mistake that ultimately caused him to fall behind. Brown still took home the silver medal, finishing in front of Cody Webb, who earned the bronze.
“I am feeling the best I’ve felt all year coming to this race,” Blazusiak told Bikeland. “The track was really different than what we’re used to, but I was very prepared and I’m happy to leave with a gold medal.”
